HOSE PUBLIC HIGHWAYS NEEDED,
Columbia county, financially, is in
fully as goad circumst.inou as mott of
the counties of tho statu, in fact in far
iSettor condition than o great many
others; yet we are greatly in need ol
roads anil bridge through the iiiterior
ways by tfliich the formers can reach
h market with their produce, and by
which new settlers may reticli their
claims not by means of a piick'liorse
by good wagon thoroughfares, with
L'ootl substantial bridges serosa the
creeks ami swamps. This is what Co
lumbia county is most in need of, and
Iter growtu will be blow until this re
iiuireitient is adhered to. Very tr,,0
those of our peoole who live along the
river front do not feel the necessity of
roads and bridges so keenly ; but When
we take into consideration that a town
without some means of support behind
it cannot meet with much success, we
cannot help yielding to the demands
of the interior to a certain degree.
The prosperity of any non-nmnilfactur-
ing section of country depends princi
pally upon the farmer. What sup
ports the river front; is it st'U-support
ing? Not by any means. Then does
it not follow that what benefits one
section, alike benefits the other? Good
liieiiwATs are the best indication of
prosperity. This county has thousands
of acres of eood land which will, in
taie, with some encouragement in
road matters, be made permanent
homes for hundreds of people who are
coming here from the East in search
of government land, and, of course,
will settle up the localities where there
are the most favorable opportunities
offered first. It does not make a good
showing for a county to have a large
bank account and at the same time
her people suffering for want of public
highways and public institutions.
Therefore, we think that instead of
striving so hard to create a surplus in
the treasury we should, for the pur
pjses above mentioned, v.irry a little
larger indebtedness, if necessary, and
extend these public improvements,
thereby encouraging an agricultural
diss of immigration, making more
population, more taxable property, and
consequently decreasing the rate of
taxation in the end. We want to reach
out for the borne-seekers; offer them
encourogemeut in every possible man
ner, and in the near future the profit
on the investment will have no parallel
NON-RESIDENT REAL ESTATE.
The non-resident, heretofore non
taxable, real estate in Columbia county,
as shown by the abstract just com
pleted by Moore & Cole, show 34,000
acres of Und within this county that
never has been assessed, consequently
lias never paid one cent of taxes.
Take this 34,000 acres, say at a valua
tion of $2 50 per acre, Which is a very
low estimate, for some of this non
resident ladd is claimed to be worth
as high as $6, $8 and some as high as
If 10 per acre. But for instance we
place the uniform value of $2 50 per
acre on the whole, 34,000 acres would
be assessed at $85,000. The tax levy
last year was 25 mills, this multiplied
by 85,000 equals $2125 due the county
in taxes had this property been in
shape so that the assessor could have
described it. The people have com
plained of high taxes, and yet this
vast amount of land, owned princi
pally by non-resident speculators, has
gone untaxed and unclaimed since
the couuty was first organized. The
owners of this land have never had
their titles recorded on the county rec
ords, hence the only reme dy was to
have a complete county abstract made
giving the description of all thb land
not on record in the clerk's office.
This has been done, and the present
county court deserve the highest com
mendation for the course they have
taken in securing for the county
means by which in the future these
speculators can be competed to pay
this tax.' The cost to the county of
preparing the abstract is about $1200,
which sum will a great deal more
than be received the first year. This
is as it should be, and in the future
Columbia county will be in line with
the procession ot other prosperous
counties of this state, and the hereto
fore untaxed real estate held by speca
lotors will be advertised and sold to
pay the taxes thereon as soon as such
This is the year of our Lord 1891,
and people are wont to, talk about our
wonderful civilization and culture, and
yet ft Wm but the other day that an
admission fee of 25 cents a head was
charged by the officials of a North
Carolina jail to see two colored pris
oners given thirty-nine lashes On their
bare backs, and, if the newspaper ac
counts are to be believed, the gate
money Was sufficient to pay all ex
pense of the exhibition. We are at a
loss for a proper name for a man who
will pay to eee such a punishment in
flicted upon another man.

A Perfect Baking Powder.
The constantly growing demand for Dr. Price's
Cream Baking Powder, the standard cream tartar powder
for forty years, is due to two causes.
FIRST: The extreme care exercised by tho manu
facturers to make It perfectly pure, uniform in quality, and
of highest raising power.
SECOND; The recent investigations exposing thd
fact that certain other brands of baking powder contaiA
ammonia and still others that were found to contain alum.
These unscrupulous manufacturers are being found out,
and the consumers are giving them a wide birth.
Nothing is left to chance in the manufacture of Dr.
Price's Cream Baking Powder. Chemists are employed to
test every ingredient as to purity and strength. Hence;
its marvelous purity and uniformity. Each can is like
every other. It never dissapoints.. BEST is ALWAYS
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any otber adulterant In fact, the
purity of this ideal powder has never been questioned.
